INTRODUCTION

An update for the Windows Internet Explorer 8 Compatibility View list that is dated March 19, 2009 is available. This Compatibility View list update helps make Web sites that are designed for older browsers look better in Internet Explorer 8. When users install Internet Explorer 8, they are given a choice whether to opt in to a list of sites that should be displayed in Compatibility View. After you install this item, you may have to restart Internet Explorer.

Note Sites are listed on the Compatibility View list in response to feedback from other Internet Explorer 8 customers. Specifically, the feedback is based on the high-volume sites for which other users clicked the Compatibility View button. This list updates automatically and helps users who are not Web-savvy have a better experience with Web sites that are not yet Internet Explorer 8-ready.
